While my BS degree is in Medical Technology, I decided to enter the classroom after 9 years of working in the clinical laboratory. I have never regretted that decision! I have taught Biology (and other Life Sciences) and Chemistry for 6 years.
My teaching style includes a great deal of interaction with the students. I am a kinesthetic learner, so I enjoy creating, planning and implementing laboratory activities and investigations. I love for students to dive in and investigate a question they have. I try to incorporate technology when I can and I love to see my students actually EXPERIENCE science. My students utilize color and creativity to express what they are learning in their Interactive Science Notebooks. I change things every year and know that I have so much left to learn!
